When Little Red Barn wakes one morning, he finds his animal friends have gone. He's empty and alone. And then big noisy machines lift him up and put him on a truck. As Little Red is transported across the countryside, down a major river, and through city streets, he feels anxious and a little afraid. Where is he going? Who will be there when he reaches his destination? When Little Red does finally reach his new home in a surprising location, he finds things are even better than before. The story of the little barn's relocation and adjustment to a new place will reassure and comfort young readers facing changes in their own lives.
"Designed to address the anxieties moving holds for children, this book is competent and clear."
From Joey Travolta - Founder of Inclusion Films
"Little Red Rolls Away will entertain young readers and their families. A welcome addition to any home, classroom, or library, it's a great resource for children who are dealing with change."
"Use this book to introduce discussions about moving to new locations, the addition of new people into one’s life, or the unfortunate subtraction (for whatever reason) of familiar people from one’s life. The book can also be used to quell fears about new friends, new schools, or simply feeling melancholy about leaving behind a life that one has known so well."
